Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit

Matthew 28:19



Go! Sign has three main aims:-


BSL Accessibility

To create a network of information about the Christian faith, events, churches and training, especially in the UK, to support Deaf people and others who use British Sign Language


Bringing Deaf people to Jesus.

To advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ, particularly among Deaf People.


Deaf Christian community

To promote the full participation of Deaf People into Church life and communities.



United we believe:-


The Holy Scriptures as originally give, divinely inspired, is the complete trustworthy Word of God and the only authority in all matters of faith and conduct. 

The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are united eternally, being three persons but one God. 

The Sovereignty of God in creations, revelation, redemption and final judgement. 

All humankind is guilty of sinning against God. 

The Lord Jesus Christ is fully God. He was born of a virgin and lived on earthly a sinless life.  

The sacrificial death of Jesus Christ, the Son of God in place of the sinner. 

The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. 

The justification of the sinner freely by grace through faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ. 

The work of the Holy Spirit in the life of the individual sinner, giving repentance towards God, and faith in Jesus Christ. 

The Holy Spirit living and working in the believer. 

The Lord Jesus Christ will return in person. 

The one, holy and universal Church, which is the Body of Christ, in which all true believers belong and serve. 

The future certain and eternal blessings in heaven for those who have been saved and future punishment in hell for those who do not believe in Jesus. 

The duty of all believers to bear witness to the Lord Jesus Christ.
